I only know Discovery and some extensions for SAN discovery, Mainframe discovery (IBM zOS, not zLinux and not Fujitsu BS2), etc. The extensions have to be licensed separately.
I am in process of installing intelligent capping product while brining up
agent for PAS, I found below tasks got initialized.
ZDZS17C /* DISCOVERY FOR Z/OS DATA COLLECTOR */
Wanted to confirm, Is it the same as DISCOVERY FOR Z/OS or what is the
difference between both the tasks DISCOVERY FOR Z/OS & DISCOVERY FOR Z/OS
DATA COLLECTOR ?
Thanks & Regards,

FMID ZDZS17C is common to MainView Infrastructure (service point PLEXMGR using any MainView Interface) and the Discovery agent for z/OS product (service point TD4ZOS using any MainView interface.
Part of the discovery collection of data is performed in the Coordinating Address Space (aka CAS), other MainView product when available also perform collection.
For example when MainView for CICS is available discovery is performed with more granularity to cover more of the CICS type of CIs.
The Discovery agent for z/OS beside doing some other collection is mainly responsible to publish the data to the Discovery server.
The data discovered underneath the CAS can be viewed using MainView Interfaces using menu View EZDISCO when in context of a PLEXMGR service point.
Hope this help, Gilles
